very modest and lady-like. On being e

specimens of her skill in driving she m
was engaged and joined the conm
As is generally known, hippodrome a

crimson and goldl, drawn by fotir t
spirited steeds, and drivein by young
women standing erect and urging I

interest at the contest, have heard a c
dreadful crash, seen the hoIses roll I

SOni a certain memorable evening
tthere was present among the spectal
tors a prominent young lawyer of this
city, a man of good looks, bearing
it and who at that time was conducting
- a lawsuit of the company, which led
M, him frequently tothe otfice of the
at business manager, which was in the
building. On this owcanion tIhe two
ul were chatting together when M'lle
in Louise entered. The lawyer remark
ed upon her good looks. "Yes," said
illthe manager, 'but she is more than
good looking. Sthe is thoroughly
he good, and lives like a man. There
has never been one word of scandal
.t connected with her name. She gets
more flowers and love-letters than
any other woman in the company, rene
but she never takes any notice of lnsh
either, and won't even take them whe
home with her.' 31yil
'Where does she come from ?' asked tie
the lawyer. tale
'That is more than any has found Fan

sure, and I have heard her speak in that
both French and German ; but I don't her

became anxious to know what man- mat

got into the habit of dropping in neoar
ly every evening to take a look at into
1 her. For a long time she seemed en
oblivious to jhis presence, though she glu
could not help noticing him, ashle al- lon
" ways stood in the same place; but lien
one evening as she drove into the wai
I green-room, and jumped out of her Edi
chariot, her dress caught in the wheel; tei
lie released it. She thanked him, Lom
and so the acquaintance began. For her
a time she was only coldly polite, but her,
gradually acquiring confidence in him, .
became more talkative and cordial, lett
though she refused his repeated re- pen
t quests to call. ing
One evening Mr. Barnum offered a tha
i laurel wreath to the winner of tha
the race, and M'll ]Louise ed- vot
clared she would win it, but, never- ng
theless, through some trifle, she came
in second. Seeing her disappoint

should have another chance andti
forthwith lie had made at Tiffany's she
' an elegant gold-mounted riding-whip. to
Wheni the evening calne the prize Ii
r. was announced by the manager, and her
quite a flutter of excitrement ensued. swi
is As B'lle Louise mounted her chari- did
ot her admirer noticed she was very hot
pale, and said (half laughing and rca
l half-earnest) :'Now, take care. I no
don't want anybody killed for that
whip.' At this she shrugged her
sr shoulders disdainfully, and replied!
'D)o you supipose I am afraid ?' No,
it is not that ; but I hope I shall
ti never leave that track alive.' I
'That is a dreadful speech to make.' tha
S 's it? Well, it needn't make any wll

The triumph of Wilts is a tribute 8
to that genius of America which, in a he
- the arts, in inventions, in almost aim
everything, is rapidly placing her in had
th iead of all the nations of the maj
e earth--the enius of enterprise, of can
work. No bright scintillations flash- glis
ing from tile bold deeds of some of
grandly heroic day-blaze around and visi
illumine his name. At its mention mem
we hear no thunders of AuAterlits, enla
we see no plume of Navarre, no cross
of Constantine. But we do hear the say
e shrill pipe of the engine, and we do ech
see the sweat of the forge. It is true froi
that there is in thie history of Gov.
it Wiltz one day illustrated by as grand
º conduct, as chivalrous and noble
n bearing and as patriotic performance
as can he found in the annals of our Frn
, country. I allmle, of course, to 'the lug
fourth of January, 1875. Ontthat day
I would rather have been Wilts thant i
Governor of Louisiana. But. there I
1e were no roaring of cannon, no rattle cer
of the death shot, no waving of ban- to
ners, no cheers for the conqueror, wh
and therefore there are no pasans and col
tf few enconiums. Wiltz has actually lie
of wrought himself to his pyond and en
ti viable position. From a poor orphan yoi
boy, behigd the counter, he has work- got
ed himnselfup to a certainty of the pre
